United℠ TravelBank Card Review

Our Detailed Review of This Card

The United℠ TravelBank Card is Chase's new partnership with United Airlines, resulting in a United-centric travel card with no annual fee and several perks.

To start, you'll earn $150 in TravelBank cash after spending $1,000 in the first 3 months. You'll also earn an unlimited 2% in TravelBank cash on airline tickets bought from United and an unlimited 1.5% in TravelBank cash on all other purchases. Note that although you earn "TravelBank cash," these rewards are not really "cash back" as they can only be redeemed for United flights. Instead, think of TravelBank cash more as a credit toward United tickets — $1 in TravelBank cash is equal to a $1 credit in United flights. You don't need to have the entire amount for a ticket saved up in TravelBank cash though, for example if a ticket costs $200 and you have $125 in TravelBank cash, you can pay for the rest of the ticket ($75) with your United℠ TravelBank Card. The card did okay in our Travel Rewards Credit Card Analysis, with a flight value of $1.53 per $100 spent, but it was hurt by the fact you can't redeem your rewards for hotel stays.

Other card perks include earning 25% back as a statement credit on food and drink purchases on United flights, purchase protection, extended warranty protection, price protection and travel cancellation insurance. Plus, for the international traveler out there, there are no foreign transaction fees, which can save you a bundle when you shop outside the U.S.

Overall, the United℠ TravelBank Card is a good fit for those who are specifically looking for a travel card with no annual fee that will earn them free United flights. If you're in the market for a card with no annual fee and rewards that are redeemable for any type of travel you prefer, take a look at Discover it Miles.
